Results from Rd 1 games against Old Boys played Sat 6 Oct, 2012

First Grade: Old Boys won the toss and elected to bat first. Old Boys hit 4/251 off their 35 overs. Best bowling:  Scott Hulbert 2/28 off 3 overs; Aaron Dennis 1/34 off 7 overs; Daniel Lawrence 1/43 off 7 overs. In reply City hit 8/211 off their 35 overs. Best batting:  Ryan Hansen 30 runs; Scott De Weymarn 29 runs; Daniel Lawrence 28 runs; Peter Mead 26 runs. In the absence of Dan Whale, Ben Semmler was stand-in captain and lead the side well.  Old Boys opener, Simon Norvill was in good form hitting his first century for the season.  It didn’t help that City dropped him 3 times alone; the first when Simon was on 4 runs.  There will be more catching practice this week lads.  Our batting line-up has plenty of promise and hopefully as the season progresses this will be reflected in the scores. First Grade has gained a few new faces this season in the form of Scott De Weymarn, Scott Hulbert, Simon Toyer & Aaron Dennis.  City also welcomes back to Ben Semmler and Ben Chew.  All these players will provide a huge boost to the First Grade side.                                                                    
Second Grade: City United won the toss and elected to bat. City United were dismissed for 197 runs in the 34th over. Best batting:  Andy Jarratt 45 runs; Chris Langston 23 runs; Sean Hancock 20 runs. In reply Old Boys were dismissed for 138 runs in the 33rd over. Best bowling:  Shel Ravi  5/34 off 7 overs; Pat Dwyer 2/15 off 7 overs; Chris Langston 2/37 off 7 overs. With the cricket season commencing during the school holidays, some players from the lower grades were called upon to help field a team for seconds. A good win boys, with tougher matches lying ahead.                          
Third Grade: Unfortunately Old Boys were unable to field a team and handed City United a forfeit.
